The focus is on football with the University of Florida and University of Georgia playing their annual college gridiron classic Oct. 28 at EverBank Stadium in Jacksonville, but there is another Gators vs. Bulldogs tradition on the schedule this week.
The 43rd annual Florida-Georgia Hulsey-Gambrell Moot Court Competition begins at 10 a.m. Oct. 27 at the Bryan Simpson U.S. Courthouse Downtown.
The public is invited to attend and observe the proceedings.
Teams of third-year law students from the University of Levin College of Law and the University of Georgia School of Law will present a hypothetical case before a panel of judges from jurisdictions in both states, simulating oral argument before the U.S. Supreme Court.
This year’s panel of judges is U.S. District Court, Southern District of Georgia, Judge J. Randal Hall (chief judge for the competition); U.S. District Court, Southern District of Georgia, Judge Lisa Godbey Wood; 4th Judicial Circuit of Florida Judge Waddell A. Wallace III; Florida 5th District Court of Appeal Judge Harvey L. Jay III; and Florida 5th District Court of Appeal Judge Joe Boatwright.
The current record stands at 26 wins for Georgia, 11 wins for Florida and five ties.
